I am a poor wayfaring stranger
Traveling through, this world alone
There’s no sickness, toil or danger
In that bright land, to which I go
And I’m going there to see my mother
And I’m going there no more to roam
And I’m only going over Jordan
And I’m only going over home

Eric Fischer’s stunning maps show origins of geo-tagged Flickr photos and Twitter tweets, not only cities but continents (Europe and North America) and even the whole world!
Orange dots show Flickr photos and the blue dots indicate tweets, while a white one means both were found in that particular location.
"A nation of homeowners is unconquerable." - Franklin D. Roosevelt
For generations, home (and land) ownership has been a cornerstone of the American Dream. Government policy has been shaped around it. Tax policy has been written to promote it. And in the early years of America, you couldn’t vote without it. It has been so engrained into our collective psyche that many of us unconsciously strive for it without asking ourselves, “Is this my American Dream?”
The time has come to stop accepting, without question, that home ownership should be everyone’s dream. The fact of the matter is that it is not - just ask the folks who wrote essays and made videos telling us about their New American Dream. Their stories make it clear: You don’t have to own your home to own your dreams. (x)
